In 1964, Floyd was commissioned to sculpt a twenty-one foot salmon named "Indomitable" at the price of ten thousand dollars. The story behind the sculpting of this piece is far too long and a bureaucratic nightmare in itself. It was finally dedicated at Prairie Creek Fish Hatchery in Orick, California, in 1974. Another piece sold at this time was the "Gold Panner" to Bohemia, Incorporated, for approximately twenty-thousand dollars. The company renamed the piece "Bohemia Johnson" and put him on display in Eugene, Oregon.

In the early 1970's, Floyd retired and moved to Gasquet, California, where he bought a house on the beautiful Smith River. There he continued to sculpt for his own enjoyment and also poured energy into incredible gardens, another of his great passions. He remained here until his passing in December of 1999.

Floyd Davis was a proud yet humble family man with boundless energy and talent. His love of Mother Nature and hard work have combined to create some of the most magnificent sculptures of the 20th Century.
